Congratulations to the Varsity Track and Field team on their success at the BAC Championships! The students set personal bests, school records, and several won their individual events as the BCL East and West combined for a perfect day of Track & Field.
Joe Zhou was named the BCL Field Athlete of the meet for his performance at the BAC Championships, jumping 44 feet in the triple jump - easily placing first, placing second in the high jump clearing six feet, and placing in the long jump with 19 feet.
This is the first award for track and field since San Domenico became coed. Joe will compete next weekend at the NCS Class A Championship as the number one seed in the triple jump and he will have a great chance at qualifying for the Meet of Champions and possibly the state championships over the next two weeks.
